I don't know if it is just me, but I find that that most of the people I know that are younger then me are getting taller. I am short 1.62m but my brother is a reasonable 1.79m and he says the same our youngest cousin is 1.95m and his brothers are all between 1.85 and 1.95. Do you notice the same in your area

Yeah I gues because of sport. I am 1.72 and sixteen years. But I've seen people much bigger at my age. When I was younger, 9 years I was very litle :P, but sport helped me grow :).

I also noticed that too. I am seeing many of my nieces which are growing at a much faster rate compared when i was at my age then. i guess the food that we eat has somehow changed our hormones that promote growth in the new generation.
